Is the slide switch on the side of the card in the correct position? It should be "unlocked".

Camera says card is not formatted and asks if I want to format but neither yes or no works


The little write-protect-switch on your sd card is perhaps the problem - that it was shifted by vibration and stands protect instead of free. or that it already was not good set or by slide or re-connect it was moved , if not may be replace the sd memory card.

Nikon coolpix copy button will not work


Make sure the SD card is not set to protect with the small slide switch on the side of the card, then try formatting the SD card NOT the internal memory.

My nikon coolpix digital camera s51c say memory card is write protected... and will not let me go to format card... what do i do... pls help


SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Have just purchased a Nikon Coolpix S3000/ Bought a SanDisk 2gb memory card whch will not work just says 'write protected'. Have looked for a switch on side to unlock but there doesnt appear to be one. ...


Hello
The problem is likely to be in SD card
This problem mostly comes with SD cards which have lock switch, your card have no switch at all so using a card reader, format it and put back in camera, hope it works if not it should be in warranty, avail your warranty option and replace it immediately.
Good Luck
hope it helps, if so do rate the solution

My camera is saying that my card cannot be used ( sd card) I erased the pictures on it and still it comes up with that. last time I used my camera it worked fine. What do i do?


Try formatting the card in the camera using the camera's format feature located in its menus. If offered "low level" format, select it. Note that this will also totally erase the card, so do this only after you're certain that all needed photos have been backed up to your computer.

Memory card wont format. I bought a new 4G sandisk memory card but all it says after formatting is the card is full.


The S200 uses SD cards. Your new 4GB card is actually an SDHC card and will not work in the S200. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Nikon coolpix s51 digtal camera memory card says can not be used?


hi..
There is a tab on the memory card so you will you need to remove it from the camera and change the position of this tab to "unlock" it.
You need to unlock the card itself. Take it out and look for a tab on the left. It should be pushed up.

thank u

CoolPix 5000 "OUT OF MEMORY" message that we can't figure out


At 4GB size, your memory card is likely a SDHC card, and not a standard SD card. Although they look the same, there is a difference in formatting. Unfortunately your model camera was designed before the SDHC format came out, and it will not work with your camera. But fortunately standard SD cards are very inexpensive these days, and you should be able to purchase a good 2GB standard card for around $6 with shipping:

Nikon Coolpix L11 Memory Card Error


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.
